  • Downtown Lecture Series: Edible Roman Empire

    What lessons can we learn about food and foodways from the Roman Empire? A surprising amount. The Roman Empire encompassed some 50-60 million people, transforming the lives of its conquered populations. Wheat, olive oil, wine, and fish paste were mass-produced and transported thousands of miles, undercutting local food traditions. Agribusiness and monoculture supplanted independent farmers. Crops were harvested unsustainably. But at the same time many people benefited from greater food security than ever before. Who were the winners and losers in this, the first globalized food system?

  • Downtown Lecture Series: We Eat What We Are

    Every loop in our social fabric involves food. When a friend passes or a baby is born, we gift the family with food. We gather to celebrate, reflect, and worship with food: wings on Super Bowl Sunday, birthday cake, Thanksgiving turkey, pozole de trigo for the Día de San Ysidro, Challah bread for the Sabbath. Even our everyday meals – how we prepare, serve and consume them – tell a story of who we are.

  • Downtown Immortality Lecture Series: "THE ELUSIVE SELF IN LIFE AND DEATH"

    Professor Shaun Nichols and his research team spent months exploring attitudes towards death among Hindus and Tibetan Buddhists in India. His exploration was prompted by the philosophical argument that we should not fear the idea of death because there is no enduring self that remains exactly the same even during biological life. At most we (our selves) are a collection of values, convictions, and memories undergoing constant change. From this perspective, the future “you" who dies will not be the same person as “you" today. Because Tibetan Buddhists embrace the concept that there is no enduring self throughout biological life, they should be less afraid of death at the end of biological life. But are they? His findings may surprise you.

  • Downtown Lecture Series: The Histories and Mysteries of Heaven

    Many people imagine heaven as a spectacularly beautiful place somewhere “up there” where God resides and where loved ones are finally and eternally united. How did the hope for a blessed afterlife arise and evolve in Western religions? Why did the hope for a heavenly afterlife become so powerful? And what do our images of the afterlife reveal about our deepest fears and highest hopes as humans today? In this lecture, Professor Wright will address these and other questions related to the power of afterlife beliefs and images of heaven. He will also explore possibilities for future images of the afterlife in light of recent advances in technology and modern science.

  • 2014 Downtown Lecture Series: Changing Geographies of Food

    We are living in a new planetary epoch - the Anthropocene - in which humans are changing the environment at a global scale. Dr. Liverman leads us on an exploration of how our everyday food choices contribute to these changes and are in turn affected by them in an increasingly connected world. How can we ensure food security for all in a world where agriculture competes for land and water with cities, industry, and ecosystems; where climatic or economic upheaval in one corner of the world triggers food price rises in another; and where billions are hungry while others are overfed? This lecture will assess the state and geographies of our food system, tracing trends in environment, food production, trade and consumption, and identifying choices that can promote a more sustainable future for ...
